CentOS in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server during the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and manage. CentOS supports multiple hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the server as one single account. You'll also have the option to get the VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you want to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
